You contradict yourself. Harmony and coordination is the same thing. A random distribution of colours is not harmony and most skyscraper clusters have a wide range of colours with no correlation from one building to the next. After all, the cladding choice is made individually for each building without some grand plan and based on whatever the owners feel looks good. Your criticism is inane and smacks of an agenda. I can't find such trollish comments in the other threads.

This building belongs in Hong Kong 1980. What were they thinking? It's to bad it's so near all those great towers that just went up. Way to ruin a nice cluster of buildings.

what's with the smaller glass panels along the setback? it really throws off the tower... even more.

This might be a stupid question but - how do you get the edges to be so parallel when you are so close to the building? The vanishing points are a long way out of the photos...

Having looked at the recent pictures I'm pretty sure the cladding will turn out fine.

Yes but London have 7.6 miljon inhabitants and Moscow 11 miljon and Moscow looks much denser than London from the air thats a fact. But I think both are fantastic cities and the Shard is still one of the best scrapers under construction!

You don't even need to reply me if you understand the figure that obviously shows Moscow is 2 times denser than London. Besides, Moscow has nearly 11 million inhabitants that live in 1,081 km2 compared to 7.55 million people live in 1,572.1 km2. I don't know what the metro population of Moscow is, London has almost 14 million.

Lets get back to the relevant topic, this tower is going to be absolutely stunning

It's looking slick - especially the clad floors.

I think what will make this tower look good or not is the lighting scheme.
